    Nah - it was good that it was open this long, as Steven got to post his thoughts without opening a new thread.

    It seemed like Bahamut waited a long time for a response of any kind, and after all his waiting, his patient waiting I might add, Ralph says that he has no responsibility on the issue, and that Bahamut should complain to his father (who's everyone suspects, is none other than an alias for Ralph to scam with). If bahamut waited any longer, it would look like the kind of guy who has an item for a month and then wants to return it for a full refund - no one would go through with it. Bahamut had to act fast, and I think he did the right thing.

    Other scammers beware. People don't want to take it up the ass. <img src="graemlins/mrt2.gif" border="0" alt="[Mr T]" />

    Right, but in one case Ralph is right. If your not sure about the authenticity of an item and

    IF YOU DO NOT GET A RESPONSE, SIMPLY DO NOT BID.

    The fact that Bahamut bids on this doubtful auction shows his own greed.

    Of course, who would not fall for a MS1 AES US offered for a "nice price"! And thatīs definatly not an excuse for your own greed.

    Bahamut just wanted to win the auction no matter if it was faked or not. Otherwise somebody else could have had the risk to win a fake or a very cheap MS1.

    Of course, this is also not an excuse for Ralph stubborn behavior, but this austionīs outcome is a very good example of peopleīs greed.

    They see MS1, propably US AES, for sale, very cheap and you got their full attention.

    "Greed" is a weakness indeed. It make you negligent and careless.

    Bahamut for bidding so rashly on this auction and Ralph, who will loose some friends and his reputation if he keeps that stubborn. BTW has he still not refund the money?

    If Ralph refunded, we would all know.

    By the way, the point of how officially that cart was present has been made. Moreover, no bootlegs are allowed on Ebay.

    True, but often offered there!

    I saw many of them! But they were declared as such so you neednīt mail the seller for info!

    So following your argumentation Chriz would
    be also a greedy person?

    I am not in the position to judge but the least
    someone can say about this deal is that it is
    shady.

    Well the one thing I learned from this story is
    that I will not trust anyone anymore.
    If I have a future deal with someone I will ask if
    his game is:
    original
    a conversion
    NGFreaked Cart
    complete
    functional
    not covered with shit
    etc. etc.

    PS Is the german NeoGeo meeting still possible?
    You wrote something about serious things you had
    to handle at the moment, or did I get it wrong?
    I wonder.
    Hope it will not be canceled.

    Isnīt everybody sometimes a little bit greedy???

    If youīve found an item on eBay, like Bahamut and i did!
    Iīve seen lots of offers, you canīt discover, if itīs real, a conversation or fake.
    Most iīll get more information about it, after iīve asked the seller.
    In these special-case, i havenīt got an answer from the seller, known as KS-Dad.

    Just think about it one more time, that item looks like an OG US Metal Slug 1, for around $1600,00!
    US MS1 are nearly impossible to find at time. So that item looks like a real cheap deal.
    Iīll thank god, that Bahamut have bidden more thant me, even in the last 2 seconds.
    I wonīt have his probs now, to get his money back.

    BTW Ralph refund him the money, even if that guy is Bahamut!!!

    You cant as long as this shitty Price Guide exist and is consulted by anyone, especially those who wanna raise the prices with the help of overdone auctions.

    You spoke to him personally, therefore it's not fraud? That does not follow.

    I really don't see how anyone can argue for KS right now. Perhaps we should review the messages that KS wrote in reply to Bahamut? I think it's pretty clear that this constitutes fraud. No matter what excuses you try and come up with, this is morally wrong. And one more little detail.... it's legally wrong. I'm sure this'll all get straightened out the way it should though, whether KS voluntarily returns the money or not.

    I am not argueing for or against anybody, I am not covering anybody, I am not insulting anybody and am neither justify nor defending anything!

    In fact I contacted Ralph in order to convince him that the longer he waits till "refunding", the worse it is gonna get for him, since many people will turn their backs on him!

    And this can not be the way it ends!
